Still rocking the free Rio Star grapefruits I got from TexaSweet, I started thinking about some grapefruit pie.
I searched high and low until my fingers fell off and my eyes started bleeding, but the only recipes I could find for “grapefruit pie” involved strawberry gelatin. While I’m sure that’s a great recipe – why else would it be ALL OVER the internet – I was imagining something more like a fruit custard, and less like a Jell-O mold.
Then a recalled a conversation I’d had recently about buttermilk pie.
It was all gravy after that. Couple experiments, each more yummier than the last, and blammo, Grapefruit Buttermilk Pie. I know it sounds a little weird maybe, but as my li’l brother pointed out, it tastes like Froot Loops and Froot Loops are good. Don’t embarrass yourself by denying that.
Plus the inside of the pie is naturally pink and that’s cute as hell.
